This new classroom-friendly 22-minute documentary reveals the astonishing moral foresight of a man known for organizing agricultural workers in the 70's and 80's. Cesar Chavez: Respect for All, provides a crash course in Cesar's leadership of the vulnerable people who toiled in the fields, but also illuminates his advocacy for women in the workplace, gay equality, and animal rights, among other contemporary causes.
The film follows Cesar's great-grandniece, dynamic 10-year-old activist Genesis Palacio-Butler, on a journey of discovery to learn more about her famous relative. At the Chavez National Monument in Keene, CA, she talks with his son Paul Chavez and others who knew him. The United Farm Workers Union and the Chavez Foundation cooperated with the filmmakers and endorse the movie.
